After litterally 5 years of JetPunking, Colombia was the only country that I always forgot to spell right. However, after this quiz (probably by the tenth of March) I was already completely used to typing it correctly.

I keep typing in "America" when I'm supposed to but nothing shows up. I typed in Alaska and it worked. Alaska is not a country, it's a state of the USA. Because we're doing countries, USA should be the correct answer for anything involving it.

Edit: For the third type in, nothing works.

I know about it :) It's a beautiful and unique little spot. Kids have to cross the border four times a day to go to school, since it's tiny and there isn't a school there. COVID has been tough on the community though, what with border closures. Looking forward to visiting it again in better times.

I love these quizzes - great job & nominated!

To tidy up the description a bit I'd suggest:

"Trace the coast of the Americas with a map"

And "Overseas Territories"

(But are there any? Aren't the non-contiguous areas just part of the country rather than OT's? Since it's "mainland Americas" you could probably just remove that caveat)

Serious question, and just out of curiosity, I've never heard the term "anticlockwise" before this. Is that a thing? I've always referred to it as "counter-clockwise." I see it's in the dictionary, I've just never heard it used.

'Anticlockwise' is the normal term in British English, thus also all over the Commonwealth. I (being British) see 'counter-clockwise' as being specifically American.

Looking at the fact you where specific on Point Roberts. You need to have a look at the border of Costa Rica and Nicaragua as there is a small bit Nicaragua in Costa Rica on the Carabian Coast. Some strips are only couple of meters

So Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Nicaragua.

The same counts for Mexico and Belize.

The tip of San Pedro Belize is connected to Mexico unless you count is as an island as there is a dug canal cutting it of from the main land

I feel pretty bad for JetPunker180. I read every comment on this quiz, and saw the words "fixed", or "changed about 50 times. (Not to be rude, but maybe you should hit *preview* before you submit your quizzes. If not, then you'll end up with Murphy's Law. You'll think everything is fine, but when you submit it, you'll get approximately 50 comments telling you "this is wrong", or "this should be there").

Great quiz, though!
